Addressing a press conference in Karachi, the chairman of the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) Ehsaan Mani has said that team India qualifies for the finals of the World Test Championship, the Asia Cup tournament will be postponed. 

The WTC Final is scheduled to take place at the Lord’s in June later this year almost at the same schedule as this year’s Asia Cup as per the ICC’s Future Tour Programme (FTP).

Notably, India have to at least avert a defeat from the touring England team in the last Test in Ahmedabad in order to qualify for the WTC Finals. They are leading the series by 2-1 and in case they face defeat in the next game, Australia will be through to the first final of the Test championship.

Earlier, Mani had warned the BCCI on the issue of availability of visas to Pakistan players for the upcoming T20 World Cup in India and assurances about it. He reiterated that stand once again on Sunday and asked the global governing body ICC to address these concerns.

He also added that the ICC has already made up its mind on the venue of World T20 in case BCCI fail to meet the demands. He confirmed the United Arab Emirates as the preferred location for the global event.
